by R.J. White |

Diamondbacks pitcher Andrew Chafin wasn't a factor in Wednesday's decision, allowing two earned runs on three hits and four walks in six innings and striking out two in his team's 4-2 loss to the Giants.

Chafin gave up a run in the top of the second inning on an RBI double, but his offense responded in the bottom half of the inning with a run to tie the game. The starter then surrendered another run in the fifth on a sacrifice, but the offense picked him back up again in the next half-inning to keep the score tied. Chafin has been solid in two starts despite having an issue with free passes. He owns a 1.64 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 5:6 K:BB ratio in 11 innings. He's scheduled to face the Twins Tuesday.

Madison Bumgarner strikes out six in no-decision Wednesday
by R.J. White |

Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and two walks in six innings while striking out six in his team's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Bumgarner wasn't able to pick up win No. 19 after earning wins in his last five starts despite delivering his ninth straight quality start. He's currently scheduled to make two more starts, beginning with Tuesday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, so he still has a chance at reaching the 20-win mark. Bumgarner owns a 2.91 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 214:43 K:BB ratio in 210 innings.
